My son uses another dictionary now, but still goes back and picks this one up from time to time looking at the pictures and reading it. That sounds strange to hear of a child reading a dictionary, but my son does because he likes to look at the pictures in this dictionary.
This dictionary is the McGraw Hill Children's dictionary. It is filled with lots of colorful pictures and nice size writing, some smaller writing. Not exactly a child's dictionary, but not advanced enough for an upper level student. Great for getting your child interested in dictionary skills. The colored pictures tend to draw my son. We found our's at a used book sale for $ 5.00.
